Diary 2020 (66) May 6th/7th Getting deeper again

I met with Mistress Jenny for one hour in the afternoon on Wednesday, May 6th, and it became an intensive hour for me. I had changed into shorts, a white blouse and overknee boots but I had to take off the blouse again and Mistress put me into the armbinder venus corset. Then we went to Heavy Bondage club and talked about the roleplay the night before. Mistress had enjoyed it, hence it might go on.
But I could also sense that Mistress was in a dominant mood and she destroyed all doubt about it. I had to wear my Ehesklavin tag again and she kept me restricted at Heavy Bondage Club. She also ordered me to take off the overknee boots and to wear ballet boots. One of Mistress’ rules is that slaves either wear no shoes at all or ballet boots and I am her married slave. And she made it very clear that I will regret it if I don’t comply to it during the red light.
The hour went over quickly and we returned to the loft skybox, where Mistress Jenny stored me in the glass cage at the wall close to her throne. I was already getting deep into subspace again.

At night Mistress released me from the glass cage and made me lick her to earn getting off the armbinder corset. I must have done well because she unlocked it and allowed me to wear the blouse again. And she cares about my addiction and that I stay addicted to her. Thank you, Mistress.

We went home and found slave Gwendi, slave Flo and slave Luci playing greedy and we joined in. After the game we decided to go to Gravity’s Wednesday party at Caged Elegance. And slave slut cecy joined us there soon after we arrived. We had fun and I found time to talk to all of them a bit. That is the upside of dancing in Second Life. The music was great as always. We had a relaxed time and Gravity played until flotime.

After the slaves were off to bed, Mistress Jenny and I spent a few minutes at club Domme a Domme. We were both tired after the roleplay the night before had kept us up way too long and hence we went back home and called it a night.

Thursday, May 7th, Mistress Jenny and I met in the afternoon again for 45 minutes. We spent the time at Heavy Bondage Club mainly just chatting and catching up with our mutual news. We were that busy talking that I even forgot to take a picture, but there are many of those pictures in the blog already *winks*

I had an invitation from Cica Ghost to visit “Social Distancing by Bryn Oh and Cica Ghost” and I did in the afternoon. As the name already gives away it is an installation that deals with the current situation in our RL and it does so with a whimsical smile (read here about this installation).
In the early afternoon I made another simploring tour and visited Hotel del Salto, the new sim of Jade Koltai. It is once again a sim that was built after a real place and I enjoyed my visit a lot and I was impressed (read my simploring report here).

At night Mistress Jenny and I met slave Flo and slave gwendi at the greedy table and we joined their game. When we were finished Ann came by and we had a longer chat with her in a relaxed atmosphere. As the slaves were not much restricted it was an opportunity to do something totally different from our normal activities. I took Mistress Jenny and the slaves to “Social Distancing by Bryn Oh and Cica Ghost” first and later to Hotel del Salto. It was fun and Mistress and the slaves enjoyed doing something different.

It was not yet flotime when we returned and hence we went to Psi’s realm just to wind down a bit before slave Flo and slave Gwendi went to bed. Mistress Jenny and I went to Puerto Esclava for a few minutes and then went to bed ourselves.

Simploring 2020 (36) Hotel del Salto

For my simploring tour Thursday, May 7th, I picked Hotel del Salto from scoop.it SL Destinations. Hotel del Salto in Second Life is owned by Jade Koltai who also designed this place on a moderate homestead.
Jade Koltai built many extraordinairy places together with Serene Footman, places you usually never get to, weired and outstanding places with history. They both now make their own designs (at least for the time being). Last year I visited Huntington Beach by Jade Koltai and I was excited about it (read here).

To say it right in the beginning. I am also excited about Hotel del Salto. Once again it is a place in Second Life that was built after a place in the physical world. It is “a hotel built in 1923 by a French architect with a view of a waterfall, being also the discharge of the sewers of Bogota in Colombia. Other legends haunt this place” (landmark description)

Hotel del Salto – overview / at the landing point

The Hotel Del Salto was previously built as a mansion in 1923. The architect who added the magnificence to the design of the Mansion was Carlos Arturo Tapias. The exterior was designed by using French architecture. In 1928 the Mansion was rebuilt as a luxurious Hotel Del Salto. The major reason to build this hotel was to attract the well-off travellers visiting the amazing Tequendama Falls. (source: worldfortravel) The Tequendama Falls (Spanish: Salto del Tequendama) is a 132 metres (433 ft) high waterfall of the Bogotá River, located 32 kilometres (20 mi) southwest of Bogotá (source: wikipedia).

The hotel was abandoned in the 1990ies most probably because of the smell of the Bogotá River, which was one of the dirtiest rivers in the world. But there were also stories that the hotel was  haunted maybe because the waterfalls also attracted people who committed suicide.
Nowadays the Hotel del Salto is a museum for biodiversity and it is again a tourist attraction.

WoW … the first impression when you land on the street that leads to the hotel is already overwhelming. You see this outstanding building on the edge of a deep canyon, the moutains in the background, the atmosphere is a bit hazy, the nature is flourishing.

Jade built the hotel not in its state of today but as the ruin that it was for many years. The nature has taken back the building, grass is growing through the cracks of the ground, windows are broken, ceilings broken. Nonetheless when you go inside you can still grasp how luxurious it once was.

But that is by far not all. Exploring the waterfalls and the canyon is great fun and from what I saw on pictures of the real place, it is quite well how it looks in reality. But in Second life you can hike without any danger of falling. From the hotel stairs lead down into the canyon. On the half way down is the first lookout to the waterfalls and it is a really nice play to stay and take a break.

Hotel del Salto – Impressions of exploring the Canyon (1)

You can decide to continue your walk over the high bridge or further down to the canyon. I went down first and enjoyed the view looking up. And I went very close to the waterfall and literally got wet by the spray of the falls. In the canyon there’s another terrace which was well visited during my visit.

Walking over the high bridge takes you the the opposed side of the hotel and there’re again several outlooks. At one I stayed a bit longer and even had a short conversation amoung tourists with a guy who sat there enjoying the view. I couldn’t get enough of this canyon and the views!

I went back to the hotel and walked to the side opposed to the falls. And there I found another outlook, well hidden by dense bushes. That’s “my” place there *winks*.

Hotel del Salto – more impressions and my favourite spot

I recommend to read about the Tequendama Falls and about the hotel (a good first source is the text in worldfortravel or the website of thevintagenews that is mentioned in the landmark description) before you visit. It will add to your experience when you visit Hotel del Salto in Second Life.

Thank you Jade for another great place, that I might never see in reality. But now I feel as if I’ve been there already. What a great trip in these crazy times.
